La Fin

the End

After 50 episodes and over 20,000 downloads, I have decided to stop producing the Mister Deejay Presents podcast.

That main reasons for this decision are that I don’t have time to produce it anymore and  that I feel that I have achieved all the goals I originally set for the podcast. (Except one: reaching 100 episodes – and  I wouldn’t want to trudge along just for the sake of reaching that arbitrary milestone).

Thanks to everyone that listened! I will keep this page alive for archival purposes and the podcasts will remain available on iTunes for as long as (our lords and masters at) Apple allow.

There’s a lot more going on in the Mister Deejay world, and you can follow along by visiting my blog at misterdeejay.ug.

Adios!

#50: Chilling with Bobi Wine

Podcast-Mister-Deejay-Presents-CoverImage2

On the podcast this week we have an interview with Bobi wine, who in my opinion, alongside Bebe Cool and Jose Chameleone, is one of the biggest names in Ugandan music.

Bobi has been on the scene for awhile now, making his debut in the early 2000s and he has also been instrumental in shaping a certain section of Ugandan music with his Firebase and ghetto republic of Uganda crews.

His self-styled title as the Ghetto president of Uganda should tell you a lot about the kind of music Bobi makes and the audience he speaks to and for. He is very much a grass roots musician who pulled himself up by his own bootstraps, so when he gets to make trips to Jamaica and do collaborations with the likes of Mr G as he did recently, it is a big deal.

THere are two songs Bobi was introducing on $SNMS when he visited, ‘Clean and out’ and ‘Girls’, both of which feature Mr G.

#49: Ruyonga “Victory music” album listen

Podcast-Mister-Deejay-Presents-CoverImage2

On the podcast this week we have an extended interview with Ruyonga on the occasion of his (debut) album release and concert.

Ruyonga has made a name for himself is a relatively short amount of time and when we sat down for this interview he was in the final phases of putting togetherhis Victory Music album and planning his first concert, which went by the same name.

Despite his exhaustion, Ruuuuu (as his friends call him) powered through the interview and allowed us to preview his entire album.  This is one of m favorite things that we do into he show because we get an insight into the music making process and it allows fans to get closer to their favorite artists. Ruyonga’s album is out now and available on myziki.com so if you like what you hear, support him and buy the album.
